Then stick around for a program with a little more bite to it. Meet in the Lodge Lobby at 2 pm for Snake Tails. This nature education program answers all of your questions about snakes. A naturalist will answer important questions, like do all snakes dangerous? Plus you’ll meet some interesting animals.
On January 1 at 1 pm, you can kick off the New Year with an adventure in the great outdoors with a First Day Hike. Meet in the Lodge lobby and enjoy a one-mile-loop through oak-hickory woods guided by a naturalist. Then come back to the Lodge fireplace to enjoy hot chocolate and cookies.
On January 4, 11, and 25, you can meet in the Lodge lobby at 1 pm for a winter trail trek through the park and forest. Make sure you dress for the weather, wear sturdy hiking boots and pack food and water for your hike.
